Although Krauthammer’s battle with a malignant tumor in his abdomen was thought to be over last August, the cancer returned. Krauthammer wrote in his letter, “There was no sign of it as recently as a month ago, which means it is aggressive and spreading rapidly. My doctors tell me their best estimate is that I have only a few weeks left to live. This is the final verdict. My fight is over,” according to

Krauthammer has had a history of illness and accidents. In 1975, Krauthammer was involved in a diving accident that left him a quadriplegic. Krauthammer has had a silent cancer throughout ten months until last August, where a  malignant tumor was surgically removed from his abdomen, according to

Executive Chairman of Fox News Rupert Murdoch had this to say about Krauthammer, “Charles has been a profound source of personal and intellectual inspiration for all of us at Fox News,” Murdoch adding, “His always principled stand on the most important issues of our time has been a guiding star in an often turbulent world, a world that has too many superficial thinkers vulnerable to the ebb and flow of fashion, and a world that, unfortunately, has only one Charles Krauthammer, his words, his ideas, his dignity and his integrity will resonate within our society and within me for many, many years to come,” according to
